Hi, and welcome to Wayfare & Bloom.
My name is Stephanie and I love to travel, take photos, and write about my experiences. When I was in college in Nashville, Tennessee, I studied abroad for a semester in Tanzania, East Africa, my first time out of the country. That trip completely changed my life. I learned how to open myself to the possibilities that lie outside my one worldview and framework. I learned how important it is to my spirit to seek the new, the exciting, the strange, the painful, the confusing, and the holy, and to seek it in every corner. This search is both life-affirming and life-giving for me, and it’s slowly teaching me patience, joy, and, above all, peace.
